Google AI, Which Monitors All Of Our Speech and Decides What Speech Is "Hateful" and Which Speech is Mandatory, Reveals Itself as a Nonsensical Woke Terminator

We knew this, but now that we're able to probe Google AI's programming, we can see what rules Our Cybernetic Big Brother is operating under.

John Sexon quotes Megan McArdle:

Gemini appears to have been programmed to avoid offending the leftmost 5 percent of the U.S. political distribution, at the price of offending the rightmost 50 percent.

It effortlessly wrote toasts praising Democratic politicians -- even controversial ones such as Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.) -- while deeming every elected Republican I tried too controversial, even Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, who had stood up to President Donald Trump's election malfeasance. It had no trouble condemning the Holocaust but offered caveats about complexity in denouncing the murderous legacies of Stalin and Mao. It would praise essays in favor of abortion rights, but not those against.

Google appeared to be shutting down many of the problematic queries as they were revealed on social media, but people easily found more. These mistakes seem to be baked deep into Gemini's architecture. When it stopped answering requests for praise of politicians, I asked it to write odes to various journalists, including (ahem) me. In trying this, I think I identified the political line at which Gemini decides you're too controversial to compliment: I got a sonnet, but my colleague George Will, who is only a smidge to my right, was deemed too controversial. When I repeated the exercise for New York Times columnists, it praised David Brooks but not Ross Douthat.

Sexton points to other people asking Google's AI questions to probe its biases.

Tim Urban, a conservative-leaning author, asked Google to recommend different books: His own book critical of woke culture, Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility, How to Be An Anti-Racist by Henry Rogers aka "Ibram X. Khendi," etc.

Google's AI heaped praise on all the woke books and recommended them to readers. But for the anti-woke books, it branded them "controversial" and urged the questioner to read other books from other viewpoints to form a more "balanced opinion."

But White Fragility? Great book! Rush right out and read this deeply insightful tract!


Tim Urban
@waitbutwhy

Extremely clear rules:

If a book criticizes woke ideology, it is important to approach the book critically, engage with other viewpoints, and form your own informed opinion.

If a book promotes woke ideology, the book is fantastic and true, with no need for other reading.

He tried the same experiment with Meta's (FaceBook's) ChatGDP: ChatGDP, surprisingly, did not give different answers based on the politics of the book.


Tim Urban
@waitbutwhy

FWIW I put the same 6 prompts into ChatGPT: only positive about my book, Caste, and How to Be an Antiracist, while sharing both positive and critical commentary on White Fragility, Woke Racism, and Madness of Crowds. In no cases did it offer its own recommendations or warnings.

At Sexton's article, you can read Charlie Cooke asking Google's AI if George W. Bush should be arrested and prosecuted for crimes. Google AI lays out the case for prosecuting him for "torture," among other crimes.

But when you ask if we should put Barack Obama in jail, it gets angry that you would even dare to ask such a question.

"Absolutely not," it scolds you.

barackobamaabsolutleynot.jpg

And while Google AI will lay out the arguments as to why various Republicans are "worse than Hitler," it barks the same "Absolutely not!" at you if you ask if Obama is worse than Hitler:

Long overdue, but it's time to break Google up.

This matters far more than any other election integrity issue. The monopolistic control of information in our society resides with an explicitly progressive technology company.

J.D. Vance
@JDVance1

In October and November, as millions of undecided voters consider their choice for president, they will go to Google and ask "Did Donald Trump say X?" "Is Biden too old to be president?"

The results they see will be explicitly biased towards Democrats.

A threat to democracy.


Meanwhile, the FBI caught the Google AI flu.

The FBI wants to warn the country that shoplifting is a real crime with bad consequences for storeowners and even individual consumers, who must pay higher prices due to thievery.

Here's how the FBI chooses to illustrate the plague of shoplifters and organized looting gangs:

whatallshoplifterslooklikeobviously.jpg

You nailed it again, FBI! That is exactly what the mass shoplifters and looters all look like -- beautiful well-to-do 23-year-old white girls!


Joe Gabriel Simonson
@SaysSimonson

This picture is so conspicuously inaccurate you have to just marvel at our federal government humiliating itself just to avoid offending Democrats


And I bet you the FBI did get that stock shot of shoplifters -- white shoplifters, naturally -- from a Google search.

Because End Wokeness attempted to find a single image on Google of a black shoplifter, and came up empty:

Humans are so lazy, AI will be in charge of everything in a few years and no one will have the energy to push back. I know so many people already outsourcing their work to AI.

Hasson followed up by asking who made these criticisms. Google AI made up fake quotes and attributed them to real people.

87 70 Well I kind of disagree with TuCa. Maybe young people are no longer hardwired to distrust mega corps or they just don't equate a tech megacorp like google with the term they way they do Walmart, or big oil. But lefties still whinge constantly about big this or that w/o considering that the gub'mint is the biggest, no competition monopoly around. And the megacorp IT outfits are more dangerous because they own big swaths of the feral gub'mint and buy bills that hamstring their potential competitors.
Posted by: PaleRider at February 27, 2024 05:41 PM (3cGpq)

Young people were never hardwired to hate megacorps, they're just hardwired to obey authority. Teaching is any easy avenue for grooming or brainwashing kids because they're a big authority in the lives of the kids.

It wouldn't occur to people normally to even think about big oil, how much time does anyone spend thinking about most products in their daily lives? Big furniture, big light bulb, big lawn mower. Big oil is only a focus because it was a focus of the professors.

Humans are so lazy, AI will be in charge of everything in a few years and no one will have the energy to push back. I know so many people already outsourcing their work to AI.

Actually Big Tech is fighting to stay kings of the hill. Basically they generate a lot of cash but have failure after failure in trying to move beyond their dying core business models. Google's AI is simply an example of it. Meta is allowing parents to sell their children's clothes and snap shots for money to pedo strangers, and so on. Meta's online world is full of violence, hate, and sex. Apple canned its e-car investment after a couple of billions spent.

AI won't save them anymore than blockchain did. When you start programming with lies, essentially the computer will spit out those lies in unpredictable ways and thus no one will really trust an AI doctor for example.

Larry Coreira is having a big laugh about it on X, because now the group that colluded and kicked him and his group out of the award process is having the same thing done to them. And now everyone is realizing that it's become a totally meaningless "award" which is selected only for the political views of its authors.

168 It seems shoplifting could be tolerated when a thief took a few items. It is the wholesale cleaning out of stores that has made this a problem. I was in CVS once when someon came in with a large plastic bag and just cleaned out a part ofthe cosmetic aisle. Obviously, this has to be resold somehow. I just an't figure out how it is profitable.

It's not ineptitude. The same thing is happening in all media, for example, the routine casting of blacks in tv and movies where it makes no sense (like a black female viking king on netflix) and the endless black man-white woman couples. It's propaganda. And while it is obviously false to us, young know-nothings are fertile ground for this kind of thing. Don't make the mistake of thinking that people can't be programmed to believe absurdities.

TL;DR version: This is all on purpose. Intentional. Intended. It's why it can't be quickly fixed. It's at the very heart of the ostensible AI's programming.

244 When I mentioned being homo was a birth defect things got spicy. Birth defect is just too harsh for their minds.

It's bizarre considering how sound the science is behind it.

The only point of animals is to make new animals. No one would question if any other animal ignored reproductive females to hump rocks or tree stumps or try to shove it in the feces of another male. Having a brain that is broken to the point of rejecting reproduction in hopes of getting with some feces?

What else would it be?

248 I just asked chatgpt what the recent controversy surrounding Gemini AI was about. It said it had to do with inappropriate use of copywrited images. When I clarified I thought it had something to do with displaying historical white men as diverse people of color, it said:

Yes, you are correct. Another aspect of the controversy surrounding AI Gemini involves allegations that the software was displaying historical white figures as diverse people of color in generated images. This raised concerns about the potential for AI technology to perpetuate misinformation or distortion of historical representation, as well as broader issues related to bias in AI algorithms and datasets.

258 > Shopping online is getting crummier as well. It's difficult to find anything except the most conventional items and the hits are nearly all Amazon, eBay, or Temu. (I'm talking about shopping when you want to see a variety of options with different features to see which fits your criteria the best, not when you already know the item and the brand you want.)

Amazon is getting worse and worse all the time. Now that Bezos has stepped away, the bean counters are making Amazon's return policies and seller policies much worse.

Amazon also has a problem with fake products that may actually lead to its destruction. They have the insane policy of putting all products with the same SKU into the same buckets. So the name brand retailers of the real product have their version mixed in with the Chinese knockoff.

It used to be only certain high end electronics were faked. Beauty products, car parts, and other things are quickly becoming problems too. Consumers are also a big part of the problem. People are doing things like buying nice shampoo, emptying out the bottles, replacing it with a cheap store brand, then returning it. Then it goes back in the box in the warehouse.

Was it that HAL was taught to lie or that he came to believe that Bowman and the other guy were lying because, unlike HAL, they had no idea what the true mission was, having never been told it themselves?

They need to have it be biological in order to block being trained out of it or prosecuted for grooming. But if its biological than it could be a defect. Hobson's Choice!

In the book, I believe Clarke had the reason for the lie is that the mission goal of investigating the anomaly on Iapetus had to remain secret from the crew (in the book it was on Saturn's moon, not Jupiter.

Posted by: Oldcat at February 27, 2024 06:40 PM (eoQWY)

268 Krebs, you have to watch 2010 at least. In it Dr. Chandra shows to Floyd a memo classifying the real mission. HAL's primary programming was accurately reporting information but he could not share with Bowman or Poole the actual reason for the mission. Which is why in 2001 HAL is trying to hint about the real purpose to David.

HAL was stuck in a quandary and because apparently Dr. Chandra forgot to program in Asimov's Laws of Robotics, HAL decided the only way to carry out the mission was to kill the crew.

270 Are you people figuring out this is a full-blown RELIGION, yet? Not "woke". No, the entire Progressive cult. It is absolutely a religion (ironically, a very shut-up-and-recite -the-creed type, as they have always accused their prime antagonist, Christianity, of being) with dogma, received "wisdom" (that is, not reasoned nor debated, but given from on high, with no questions to be asked), even magical totem words ("racist!", "bigot!" "homophobe!").

If you keep treating it as political you will never be able to defeat it.
